Redstar had waited patiently for a slump in the days action, and just as the sun began to set and an orange tint started to fill the sky he walked the well worn path up to the hill top and gave a familiar cry. "All cat's old enough to catch their prey, gather around!" It had been a season of firsts, and this would certainly be no exception. After waiting the sufficient time for the clan to rouse itself and form a semi-circle around the hill where he sat perched, Redstar began. "I would like to begin by asking you to take a look around." Redstar boomed, giving the cats gathered below a chance to do as he instructed. "What you see before you is perhaps the strongest LightningClan has ever been, and today we become even stronger! Windpaw, Sleetpaw, step forward." Redstar commanded before launching into a speech that was only partially prepared. "Your mentors have spoken highly of you, and have detailed to me the progress of your training. Even disregarding that it is plain to see what fine young cats you are becoming. Sleetpaw, you have stayed true to yourself and found strength in doing so. Your bravery is evident as you continue to push yourself further than others would ever dream of, and your loyalty to your siblings, and clan mates, is admirable. You have more than earned your name, Sleetnose." Redstar finished, before turning to the second apprentice that sat before him. "Windpaw, you too have shown incredible loyalty to your kin, and your clan. Your energy is inspiring, and as you have learned to control your focus it is apparent that you will soon be an unstoppable force. Continue to follow your heart, and never let others prevent you from doing what you know needs done, accept the name Windspirit with pride." Redstar was incredibly pleased to see the excitement, and pride, in the eyes of the two cats that stood before him. Nothing could ever have prepared him for this moment, and he was surprised at the intense feeling of satisfaction that filled him. "I, Redstar of LightningClan, call upon StarClan to look upon these two who have trained hard to understand the ways of a warrior. Sleetnose, Windspirit do you promise to uphold the Warrior Code, even at the cost of your life?" Redstar began before pausing, and after receiving a confirmation from each cat he continued. "Then I am honored to welcome you as full warriors of LightningClan!"
